We have so many stories to tell you of projects and achievements realized over these past so many years. And because ‘a picture tells a thousand words’ we thought these images capture our stories best.
Talek school – Mar 2021
The completion of two classrooms at the Talek School, Masai Mara in March 2021, helps to decongest this heavily populated school which enhances social distancing. Asante!
Planting Trees – Feb 2021
We are in the start phase of planting 100 trees at the Kicheche Bush camp. This is part of our carbon offset program, by 2025 we aim to have planted 1000 trees.
Game drive – Jan 2021
With the gradual reopening of schools, the students and staff of Olkimitare School were taken on a game drive. What a brilliant way to kickstart term one of school!
Aitong Primary School – Dec 2020
As COVID-19 measures relax and schools open up again, we saw an acute shortage of desks. However, our generous guests permitted the installation of 30 new desks!
Toilet/bathroom Construction – Dec 2020
With the support from our annual medical camp doctors, a toilet and bathroom were succesfully built. Now the clinicians at the Aitong Clinic can put them to use!
Christmas Activity – Dec 2020
During these unprecedented times, we find it as important as ever to keep the holiday spirit alive! The women of our community got creative and crafted Christmas crackers.
Hand washing stations – Nov 2020
At Aitong and Nkoilale Shopping Centre, we took the intiative to install 6 hand washing stations in a bid to keep our community safe. Everyone is free to use them!
Market Clean Up
Every season the Kicheche Trust rallies to do a village market clean up. The recent ban on plastic bags will hopefully eradicate the need for these clean ups soon.
Naboisho School Playground
At Naboisho school it's not all just about the academics; there is now also time and a place to play. KCT was able to make this playground with tired vehicle tyres.
Back in 2007, one of our first big projects was to build a double class room for the Olkimitare school, a school we are still happily partnered with todate.
Our Kicheche women beading group regularly makes items for the camps as well as for the shops. They have now also expanded to making cool Xmas crackers.
Kicheche nurtures several beehives. Being on the conservancies, the bees benefit from more food, water and protection, despite our small annual harvest.
Over the years we have donated several classrooms to our communities. This was one was in 2018 at Naboisho school. The inauguration was a fun-filled event!
Countless donations were made to the CMF clinic, a maternity ward, dental equipment, solar equipment, water pump, study books ... as to name just a few.
Kicheche Trust Tree Planting
Carbon free travel is not just something for the future. At Kicheche you can plant as many trees as you like in our Kicheche Trust forest-to-be. Through trees we breathe...
The Wathituga schoolchildren gladly received their first school computers and printer in 2019. Both the headmaster and the older children will finally get real-life IT practice!
In Feb 2020 we organized an empowerment course for women, by women. This outreach program was indeed most rewarding for ALL stakeholders involved.
With no running water provisions every drop is important. With the help of TMT and Exodus, this rainwater catchment project in Mara North was a great success.
Book Donation – Nov 2018
The lack of school material in rural Kenya can hinder the learning processes of students. Our marvellous Kicheche Camp guests tackled this problem with a book donation.
Our Kicheche volunteer training programs are very popular. Projects offered in the past are a basic HR program, Small Business Management and an IT literacy course.
Learning without teaching materials is a mission impossible. Since its conception the Trust has donated over a thousand Kenya curriculum school books.
The Kicheche trust has donated hundreds of school benches such the children can finally have more comfort and no longer have to sit 4 onto one bench.
During the 2015 medical training camp, Nairobi based obstetricians took our local medical practitioners from Aitong in Masao Mara under their professional wing.
Our annual free clinics, organized with fellow stakeholders, are an excellent way for our communities to enjoy more benefits of the wildlife & tourism.
KCT keeps the Mara Lion Project on the tracks by donating annually towards part of their vehicle maintenance expenses.
Our bigger and longer term projects need crowd funding. It’s not always about one person doing one big thing… it’s about a lot of people doing many small things together that really makes the difference: little things make big things happen!
